Great Document Formatting, Storage & RFP Program

We keep coming back for more year after year. Overall as our admin and heavy user, I've really enjoyed the system.

Pros

I love that XaitPorter has a straightforward user interface that responds as simply as Word yet formats everything to our corporate specs as established in our onboarding. The system allows my team to produce professionally formatted documents without the headaches of formatting it or outsourcing the document for branding purposes. As the head of marketing I know that anything that comes from XaitPorter will be to our brand standards. Plus it's a foul proof system - the team can't break it! We also have started using the system as an RFP management tool allowing for assigning of tasks and monitoring workflows and completion status updates. Makes it easier to manage one system vs. 15 people.

Cons

The only con with the software is it just requires people to learn in the system and play around in it. Makes it a little hard to onboard a team to the software especially for those who need repeated usage and don't use it all the time. Also, it is not the easiest software to onboard people on, I remember when we first had our onboarding, you can teach features and functions (which are very straightforward) but there's no really good start to finish demo that would allow someone to grasp full functionality for their business. The system is really customized to the projects you are looking to do - which is a pro and a con I guess.

Significant Improvement in Proposal Development

We wanted to improve our proposals - look, feel, efficiency at creating. XaitPorter is the perfect solution for anyone who produces technical or commercial proposals. It is so easy to use, proposals look great (and in line with our corporate guidelines). Very easy decision to continue using.

Pros

1. So simple to pick up and use - within 10 mins you are able to create a professional-looking proposal. If you use Word you can easily use XaitPorter 2. Standard look and feel to proposals - with the way XaitPorter is set-up all our proposals across the world look and feel the same 3. Document sharing is so simple. Multiple people can work on the same document at the same time without issues. 4. Document library - once we set up document libraries, creating a complex proposal is very easy - and having standard content across the company is fantastic. 5. Xait support - we have a dedicated contact point (not just a standard email address) who provides feedback very quickly and troubleshoot any issues we have. 6. Proposal templates - one template gives same look across the company which matches our corporate guidelines. If we ever need to make a change it will be automatically added to all our templates.

Cons

1. No dedicated App.... sometimes having the ability to comment, update and create proposals on an iPhone would be very useful... currently XaitPorter isn't set up for mobile phone usage (I think iPhones with bigger screens it can work).

Easy to use colaboration software

As a Porter administrator I have very good experience with porter. It’s easy for new users to get started with Porter, easy to set up lay-out templates that saves the users a lot of time. The functionality with setting up a workflow with responsible contributors and deadlines ease the whole document creation process and ensures that the document is completed before deadline.

Pros

Multiple users working on same project/document, easy re-use of documents, templates for layout and branding, easy access control.

Cons

None that I can think of ... - at all...

Good, but not Improving

Pros

This product allows us to do online collaboration so that we can work together as a team to build documents. It allows us to separate the content from the style so that we can focus on the technical details and forget about the look and feel. It's a lot more user friendly than Latex, which was an alternative that I had been considering for a while.

Cons

There isn't an easy way to number items in a table. I asked XaitPorter to implement this feature a long time ago and they said that they'd take it under consideration. As far as I know, they've forgotten about my request. Me and my team spend a lot of time manually numbering items in tables and we frequently make mistakes that show up in published documents.
